Music Workshop

Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music

Please join us for a celebration of the eminent musicologist Richard Toop (1945-2017). Lecturer at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music for 35 years, as well as Chair of Musicology, Richard was a leading international scholar of the musical avant-garde. Renowned for his work on the compositional methods and music of Stockhausen, Ferneyhough, Ligeti, Richard Barrett, Liza Lim, Michael Smetanin and others, Richard was also a major influence on modernism in Sydney and more broadly, Australia.

This event will involve performances and reflections from some of Richard’s friends.
